What do you do when a friend asks you if you want a collection of 800+ DVD Movies? You say YES of course. But then where do you store them?
You build a bunch of shelves.
I decided to make this modular storage system from plywood scrap laying around the shop. Danish Oil was used for the finish.
Each module measures 36 inches wide, 17-1/4 inches high and 6 inches deep. The back is 1/4 inch plywood set into a rabbet. A 1/2 inch shelf divides the module.
Each module has 2 holes in the top and bottom …
in which a floating dowel is inserted so the modules, when stacked, don’t move side-to-side or back-to-front.
A stack of 4 modules sits on a base trimmed with some nice base molding. Each base also has 2 holes to receive the floating dowels.
I made 2 bases and 8 modules.
Each module has a finger hole routed into each side. An 1/8 inch of hardwood edging was glued and pin nailed to the plywood edge of the module as well as the shelf.
The back of each module is joined with a strip of hardwood and 2 screws on each end.
The base is also joined with a strip of plywood and a spacer.
This is a view of the back of the joined modules.
This is the 2nd set of joined modules. Looks like I can add a few more DVD’s on the bottom.
Thanks for looking.
